Taking heat in the fight for a NY congressional seat

06.19.20 | Brandon Dickson

The Erie County DA is reviewing a voter and elections fraud complaint against Senator Chris Jacobs.

The Republican is running for western New York's vacant 27th District seat.

One of the allegations claims Jacobs registered to vote in the Orchard Park District before actually owning a home there.

Democratic opponent, Nate McMurray, says, if true, it's sad for the region."

Jacobs called the allegations a "desperate political stunt made by someone who is about to lose an election." He's currently a candidate for Tuesday's Republican Primary in the 27th Congressional District.
